The North Face Men's Baltoro HV 400

rated 1 of 5 stars First snow of the season, so I pulled my North Face boots out only to find that the rubber lower portion of the boot has cracked and separated from the leather upper. I guess it isn't rubber but some kind of hybrid plastic. These boots were only worn maybe a half dozen times. They are about 7-8 years old. The boots are crap, they should last longer than this. They should not dry rot from non use. My wife's Timberlands are 20 years old and still holding up like they were new. I thought I was buying… Full review

The North Face Men's Chilkats

rated 0.5 of 5 stars I had the same problem others have written about. I had very, very little use on my boots and went hunting, and after walking a couple hundred yards the entire boot completely came apart. The rubber split and cracked away, and the glue holding the rest of the boot to the rubber portion tore away from the base of the boot. I probably had walked less than five miles over time in these boots—and stored them in a completely dry and temperature controlled closet in my house. In my opinion, these boots… Full review

The North Face Men's Chilkats

rated 2.5 of 5 stars My boots also cracked, although mine are more than 10 years old. My fave part to this boot was the click strap instead of laces. Does anyone else know a boot style like this? These were exceptionally comfortable boots. I don't want to purchase another pair due to others' experiences and TNF responses. Evidently they used a grade of rubber that tends to age and degrade at room temperature. Should have used a better synthetic compound. I think I will take mine to a shoe repair shop to see if there… Full review

The North Face Women's Chilkats

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Rubber cracked after minimal use. The same exact thing happened to my boots when I took them out of the closet. There appeared to be a small crack in the rubber and when I actually wore them outside to shovel snow they cracked across the entire boot.  They were in perfect condition prior to this happening and were worn maybe 3-4 times per year. NF should be ashamed of themselves for selling such an inferior product. Will never buy boots from them again! Full review

The North Face Men's Chilkats

rated 0.5 of 5 stars I never write reviews, but felt a duty to others to tell them to save their money. I couldn't believe that my boots, which I've worn only a dozen times, are falling apart. The rubber is cracked all the way across the top of my boot. I saw many other similar complaints. I spent a lot of money on these boots to make it through Minnesota winters. I thought I was investing in a reliable product. I love North Face products, but these boots are a wreck. I see the warranty is only for 1 year, so I'm just… Full review

The North Face Women's Chilkats

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Run fast away from these boots. I had a pair of North Face white women's boots. I kid you not, I wore them once and they cracked up and the top plastic portion fell away. I was sooooo disappointed. I think they are designed to fail.  Full review

Muck Boot Arctic Outpost Lace Mid

rated 4 of 5 stars A fully waterproof winter boot with a leather upper. Multi-directional lugs provide excellent grip. Winter conditions become a lot more manageable when wearing a good pair of winter boots. This winter I switched to the Muck Boot Arctic Outpost lace-up mid-height boot after 40 years of wearing a popular Canadian brand, and I couldn't be happier. Having lived in heavy snow country for many years I've gotten used to living in winter boots for months at a time and having a pair that are comfortable… Full review

Steger Mukluks Arctic

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Couldn't fit on my foot, and limited refund. I recently tried to buy a pair of boots from Steger, had a problem getting my foot beyond the narrow ankle. They suggested an alternate pair, the same problem. The ankle opening is too narrow. When I returned them, they stated that the postage is on the customer, so they don't want to refund my full purchase. I have paid for shipping on a product I cannot use and no longer have. Poor effort on their part to make this right. Not the only one who has run… Full review

The North Face Men's Chilkats

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Made from improper materials. My Chilkats are maybe three years old and I wear them solely for snowblowing during New England winters. I've worn them approximately fifteen times. When they're not on my feet, they're stored in the house. About four weeks ago, I took them out of the closet and found the right boot had four or five major cracks in the rubber material, wide enough to expose the insulation inside. Then, a few weeks later, the same thing happened to the left boot! This is clearly a failure… Full review
